A Note about Spring Reservations:

LUNCH: Can't find what you're looking for?  We DO release additional reservations the DAY OF!  This is for those that are local, spontaneous, maybe a quick business lunch or just in the neighborhood. DAY OF reservations are typically seated in our view Dining Room, but feel free to make a request and we will do our best to accommodate you.

DINNER: Spring Dinner Reservations are seated in our Inside View Dining Room due to cool spring evenings… But if you prefer outdoor dining (and it’s early in the evening) make a note and we will do our best.

FULL OUTDOOR RESERVATION AVAILABILITY BEGINS IN JULY

The Pink Door is an independently owned (never cloned, never genetically modified) restaurant that has been quietly dedicated to fresh & local Italian food since 1981. Its seafood & produce driven menu has been the central theme throughout its wildly popular domain in Seattle's Pike Place Market.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
9.2

The Pink Door is part circus burlesque, part Italian restaurant, and is one of the best dining experiences you can have in Seattle.

Ratings 9.0-9.8:If the 8.5-9.0s are the restaurants you’ll frequent for more than just special occasions, the 9.0-9.8s are the all time great restaurants of their city. Restaurants that will be around 20 years from now, assuming the Earth is still around.

Seriously, one of the best meals and dining experiences I've had in quite a while. Very seldom do you eat at a restaurant and all four meals are wonderful. Tonight was one of those nights. Among the four of us, we had the lasagna, cioppino, linguini and clams, and the special fish, which was salmon. Sevice was wonderfulI, and the evening entertainment was also fun. If I could give 6 stars I would! Highly recommended...make reservations.

As soon as we entered we saw how greatly decorated the place was. We were greeted very kindly upon arrival and they met our request of having a view of pike’s place. Our waiter was very professional and gave us great recommendations that we absolutely loved! We came to Seattle and heard about this place and it surely did not disappoint! Our view + the service + the exquisite food equaled the perfect meal! We had the lasagna and oh my goodness! The lasagna was to die for! Will definitely come again for great pasta and drinks when in Seattle!

The Pink Door has been recommended by so many people when I mentioned I was going to Seattle. The second time to Seattle we made sure to make reservations. The food was carefully crafted and delicious. The specialty cocktail I had was creative and tasted so good. The atmosphere was everything you could hope for when having lunch on a Friday afternoon. We sat in the outdoor area bc the weather was too nice to sit inside but the inside is decorated so beautifully. I hope to come back for the burlesque show on a Saturday night! Loved the Pink Door! Can’t want to go back!

We had high hopes for this restaurant and several people told us this was an excellent place in Seattle. After walking into an unmarked door, we walked into what felt like a dungeon with a strange smell. As we were seated, we noticed our utensils were dirty. Our waitress was not friendly and seemed to merely tolerate us.

The menu was basic, the food was average and the pasta was very dry. The saving grace was the live music, which we enjoyed but the bread and oil was probably the best part of the meal. Never a good thing. We made the reservation over a month in advance and could only get a table at 9:15 pm so we were very disappointed we wasted one of our precious nights eating here.

The Pink Door is very eclectic and the vibe is really unique and cool! Staff is accommodating and service is great. Our food was delicious. The fresh catch was exquisite. We were entertained by a sultry aerialist. Her exotic rope and hoop dan e was quite beautiful and sexy. This capped the outstanding experience we had here. I highly recommended next time you visit Seattle.

Loved the service and sunset view. Would recommend to go around 8:30-9 and take the waterfront seating to enjoy the sunset. I could not get a table while trying to make early booking so booked seat at the bar. On reaching there they adjusted for a table overlooking the sea. I got lucky and I thoroughly enjoyed the night.

I am so so happy I listened to other Yelpers and made this a "must go" on my trip to Seattle! We were only seeing the city for one day and with how in demand this place is, decided to go with a 3:00 pm early dinner reservation rather than wait for hours at peak time. It was perfect weather so we dined on the patio and it was literal perfection. Started off with an amazing bubbly glass of prosecco, then had the rigatoni with meatballs. So fresh and delicious. BUT my biggest advice is to GET THE RICOTTA CHEESECAKE. We asked for a side of strawberries with it. But it was the best thing I have ever tasted in my life. Packed with so much flavor, my friend literally drooled when she took the first bite. Didn't want it to end. They also put a little candle on it for my birthday - loved the acknowledgement! Thank you so much for a great time!

It was a upbeat place. Very crowded with little space. Very loud. We liked the atmosphere though and the pretty flowers. It would probably be good to have a sign for the first timers or a brighter pink door because it was hard to find. The food was tasty and the dessert was yummy!
